Local attraction, Local Attraction, Local Area, Off-Site

The exhibition is timed to mark the 150th anniversary of the birth of Nikolai Konstantinovich Roerich (1874–1947), one of the most famous Russian artists of the first half of the 20th century. The exhibition will include more than 130 paintings and graphics, from the famous masterpieces "The Gonets" and "Overseas Guests" to the works of the Indian period with "Guga Chohan" and "Messenger". Roerich will be presented not only as a "master of mountains", but also as an artist who strove for creative realisation in the fields of theatre and architecture. The backdrop to the legendary "Polovtsian Dances", presented by Sergei Diaghilev in 1909 in Paris, will be restored especially for the exhibition.

The exposition will be complemented by Polovtsian idols and monuments of art from Ancient Asia (Tibetan Thangkas), memorial objects, archival materials, and books by N.K. Roerich on archaeology, travel and philosophical works.

The works from the collections of the Tretyakov Gallery, the State Museum of Oriental Art, the State Russian Museum, the Nizhny Novgorod State Arts Museum and other Russian museums will present the master's legacy as a holistic phenomenon of not only national but also world culture.

The exhibition will be accompanied by an extensive cultural and educational programme for adults and children.

Local attraction, Local Attraction, Local Area, Off-Site

The State Tretyakov Gallery presents a project dedicated to the 100th anniversary of Moscow sports. The decree of the All-Russian Central Executive Committee on 27 June 1923, established the Supreme and local councils of the physical culture of people in the RSFSR. More than 130 paintings, graphics, sculptures and monumental art from the collection of the State Tretyakov Gallery and 15 other museums represent the sports theme, which played an important role in the 20th century, when the development of sports was inseparable from the task of forming a "new man", and artists were inspired by the images of people who overcame themselves, achieved victories, and became the ideal of physical beauty, courage and will.

Local attraction, Local Attraction, Local Area, Off-Site

Until 29 July 2024, the Historical Museum is hosting the exhibition "Treasure Troves. Hidden History", which presents famous treasures of the past.

The legends about treasures that have remained to this day tell about barrels, cast irons and chests filled with gold and silver hidden in a moment of danger. The exposition presents 117 unique items, including the most famous treasure of the 2nd millennium BC - The Borodino hoard, containing symbols of power and items of armour of warriors, leaders and heroes of epics, as well as gold and silver items that were hidden in caches and churches during the Mongol invasion of 1237-1240.

A separate section of the exhibition shows numismatic treasures from the Romanov dynasty. The hoards found in Moscow in the Kitay-Gorod area are of particular interest. For the first time in Moscow are presented items of the Naryshkin hoard from the collection of the State Museum-Reserve "Tsarskoye Selo". Family silver of the noble family Naryshkin was found in St. Petersburg in 2012. At the moment it is the largest hoard in the national history.
